2014 Fall Dance Concert – Travelogue
Jeanne Travers has been involved in collaboration, interdisciplinary and multicultural choreographic projects that have spanned the globe. Her choreography has been presented nationally and internationally in Bolivia, China, Ecuador, France, Italy, Scotland and Tunisia. In addition, Jeanne Travers has been on faculty at the University of South Florida (Tampa, FL) for the past 18 years and has been the recipient of numerous grants and awards including funding through the American Embassy and the Minister of Culture in Tunisia, sponsorship from the Mayor of Paris for her Visions of Peace project and funding through Beijing Normal University in China. She is an esteemed Master Teacher and has been a Choreographer in Residence for several universities, colleges and companies throughout the United States.
For Travelogue, Jeanne Travers will be bringing USF alumni together with Visionary dancers in a diversified evening of dance. Presenting pieces from her vast repertory, Travers’ choreography is highly physical and energetic yet deeply rooted in the kinetics and technicality of modern dance.
Presenting a solo work on Master Teacher and Ballet Mistress for Visionary School for the Performing Arts, Kiona Daelyn, “Ceremony” is inspired by the traditional music of Burundi and fuses contemporary modern dance with the flavor of African Dance.
“Falling” featuring University of South Florida alumni, Amanda Cox and Dazaun Soleyn, explores the interplay between a couple trying to give voice to their relationship set to Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater.
Closing out the show will be “Tunisian Nights” featuring VDT dancers Trixi Anne Agiao, Ramon Montes, Marty Anthony Dorado, Caitlin Rose Franco, Melissa Lenz and Drew Ornelas. Inspired by Dizzy Gillespie’s “A Night in Tunisia”, this up-beat and dynamic group piece is an energetic finale for the show.
“I am very pleased to have Visionary Dance Theatre host my mentor Jeanne Travers. I have had the pleasure of being in many of Ms. Travers’ choreographic works as a young man. As my dance mentor, Ms. Travers instilled in me my desire to become a dancer and choreographer. It fills me with joy to have her set work on my dancers here at VDT. It fills me with greater joy that she will be bringing her dancers to join us on this journey. It is a wonderful opening to VDT’s 5th season. As a dancer, her choreography fills your spirit. As an audience member, you will be moved and entertained.”
